Default Lake Tahoe

Anyone that hit up Tahoe last year knows the whole season sucked. Let's hope the snow is better this year. I've only been to Squaw and Heavenly. Any other recommendations?

How is Mt. Hood, anyways? I've been thinking about taking a mid-season trip up there this year.

Kirkwood without a doubt. Sugar Bowl is excellent, Alpine is also great.

For a more mom and pop feel, hit up Homewood or Sierra.

Def hit up kirkwood next trip. 45 inute drive form south lake, and they get 550 average a year. i think thats double heavenly? check out chair 6 first, then start asking the locals if you can take a run with them. you'll be able to tell the ones who are going for the good stuff. There is a chair that if you hike skiers right up a short ridge, you get to a wind blown cornice. strap in, and ride at it as fast as you can. (you can eye this spot up from the lift)

kirkwood or alpine or serria is the only place to ride
MT rose was off the hook last year

matters which way the storms line up

Well, it was looking good in September. Now there isn't even any snow and it's supposed to be unusually warm and dry for the next month. Good thing I'm heading up to Whistler and Mt. Baker, WA for a couple weeks...

I've always rode Squaw because they give me free lift tickets all year for being in the military. I've been to Sierra and Northstar, but that was years ago and I don't really remember them very well.

So, without anything else to compare it to really, Squaw is a great resort in the Tahoe area.
